Are you ready to get more clients through business affiliations?

If you’re not ready – this document can still help. It will guide you on what you could propose.

If you are ready – let us get you protected.  This affiliation agreement is going to help to set expectations and legal protection of the relationship.

As a photographer, it can be tempting to go it alone. But professional isolation can be dangerous. Being too independent can damage your business and burn you out.

Affiliating with another company can be an effective way to not only save yourself from burnout but take your business to the next level. By teaming up with other companies, you can acquire clients and grow your business.

From boutiques to florists, caterers to salons, business affiliations can be key to your success as a photographer.

That's why our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® developed, reviewed, and approved this Business Affiliation Contract. We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.

This business affiliation contract will help you set expectations and legally protect the affiliate relationship. The document is intended for referral fees for referred and booked clients, along with the inclusion of photographer marketing materials and photograph displays in the Business Vendor's workplace.

Not quite ready for affiliates? This document can serve as a helpful guide on what you could propose when the time comes.

The immediate download covers the following provisions: 

Relationship: length of agreement, defining the relationship, defining the scope of the agreed to actions by both parties, and defining what constitutes a referred client

Referral Fees: compensation and payment, cancellation by client, notification to client in accordance with laws, and business vendor's usage

Photographic Displays: grant to vendor, use of images, modification and reproduction, display and safekeeping, request of images, procurement of images, copyright ownership, and compensation for use

Marketing Material Distribution: purchase of materials, modification and reproduction, request for additional materials, compensation for use

Not only do our photography contracts provide legal protection, they position you as a credible business owner. Affiliates will respect your clear rules, detailed expectations, and you!


As an affordable way to protect your business, our lawyer-drafted, photographer-approved contracts are a must-have investment for your long-term success.

Why are we different

It can be overwhelming to run your own photography business. From contracts and release forms to intellectual property law, the complexities are intimidating.

As a team of lawyers and photographers, we know what it's like.

And we don't want fear of the unknown keeping you up at night.

That's why we offer affordable photographer contracts tailored to professionals just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every contract.

We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.

If you're afraid of client disputes and potential liability, you're not alone. Business conflict is time-consuming, expensive, and harmful. Which makes it essential to protect your work.

Protecting your business with clear and comprehensive contracts is non-negotiable. Whether you're starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, legal protection is extremely important.

Every contract template we provide is easy to edit and should be tailored to reflect business policies and laws in your state.

While you can obtain a contract through a non-photographer lawyer, it may not be the best choice. Since our templates were created by—and for—photographers, they are typically more comprehensive. And cool news, they can save you money.

Lawyer-drafted. Photographer approved.

No recurring fees - just one time payment.

Instant-downloadable template.


Here is our legally required fine print.

While TheLawTog is run by a lawyer, it is not a law firm and provides no legal services. All templates, courses and products are educational content only. Use of this website does not create a lawyer/client relationship.

All contracts are drafted on general contract principles for the United States of America. These contracts go through a multi-level review process with attorneys and photographers.

Each contract has fill-in-the-blank sections and allows for editing to suit your business policies + local state laws.
